A phamacology dataset

This is one of the datasets of the first causality challenge: causation and prediction. The goal of the challenge was to make predictions under manipulations.

SIDO (SImple Drug Operation mechanisms) contains descriptors of molecules, which have been tested against the AIDS HIV virus. The target values indicate the molecular activity (+1 active, -1 inactive). The causal discovery task is to uncover causes of molecular activity among the molecule descriptors. This would help chemists in the design of new compounds, retaining activity, but having perhaps other desirable properties (less toxic, easier to administer). This dataset is semi-artificial: it contains both real variables and artificial variables (probes).

For the pot-luck challenge, the task proposed is to discover the causal network in the neighborhood of the target.

How can i find the cost of each manipulation please?
